What is Buddy Punch?

Buddy Punch was built out of a need for a simple, easy to use, and affordable scheduling and time card solution. We can't use paper forever - and time shouldn't be kept in excel spreadsheets or handwritten/faxed time cards.

Key benefits of using Buddy Punch

Simplicity. We've tested our app with real users and they required no training to be effective. Error handling is built in - we're human and we all make mistakes, our app helps your employees fix them and automatically notifies you. Not only is the app intuitive but security is a top priority. Not only is your information encrypted but if your computer has a webcam it can be used to take snapshots of each punch, to verify that your employees are actually there and doing the punching.

Buddy Punch can be used on any internet connected device. We're a web based solution, nothing to download, install, or update.

Pros
That is one of the things I think are most important- the great customer serivce. The accessibility to actual people can help is valuable.
I love the facial recognition feature and other features that are offered to ensure that your staff is on the job site in order to sign in.
BEST of all, when I have a question, Buddy Punch really LISTENS and always walks me through the answer or offers to help themselves.
Cons
There were times where it was buggy and screens would get stuck so that you had to reopen the map and follow a specific procedure to avoid the issue from occurring again.
It is hard to correct if you did the wrong punch in or out.
The only issue we've encountered is adding or editing times. If somebody forgets their punch it can cause some struggle.

Great time keeping app

Reviewed 4 years ago

Great app, check in and out with accuracy, keep in contact with supervisors and can submit photos for proof of visit if not using GPS.

Pros

I am an Event Specialist with Deluvia Inc, they upgraded from emailing and faxing my time sheets in to this system. They are out of state so this is a great way for them to keep up with my time while doing "Road Shows". I arrive at my location, open the app and sign in, my employers do require me to attach photos so I snap a photo of the store front before entering. While there, I setup my samples...

Cons

The only thing I found odd was I could log in anytime during my employment, but couldn't do so between Road Shows. I wanted to look at my schedules and could gain access to the app. Other than this hiccup, the app works fine. Deluvia gets my time and there are no shortages on my check.

Vendor response

Thank you for the review, it is great to hear that you're using our smartphone app as well as our notes and photos on punches feature. We have a few limiting options for employers and that is why you weren't able to login while outside of the show. Thanks again!

Buddy Punch serves all our needs

Reviewed a month ago

We have been using Buddy Punch since 2015. Prior to Buddy Punch we were using an excel spreadsheet for time keeping. We use Buddy Punch as a time clock for daily in/out and breaks. We use the PTO accrual system and PTO tracker. Buddy Punch is easy to use and easy to figure out. Customer service is responsive. The few times I've needed help (very rare) they were super responsive and made sure...

Pros

*Easy to use *Great mobile app *Many bells and whistles

Cons

The only Con I have with Buddy Punch is the name. 'Buddy Punch' just feels awkward.

Vendor response

Thank you Anita for the review and kind words, we appreciate your business throughout the years and the recommendation!

so so not greatest

Reviewed 6 years ago

Several areas of concern. Very little corrections made based on feedback. Not able to contact support by phone. Delayed response in email. Not open to different types and operations for different business types. This is a very baseline product with little features. Menus are hard for older users to read. Not user friendly for most users. Time corrections are difficult for users to complete or request. Very limited on admin ability to control aspects of the clock to prevent user issues. reports decimal place cannot be changed from 3 to 2 decimals increases rounding time for admin. Integration with payroll company cost additional funds.

Pros

online can view anywhere from a computer . the app is poor at best and is not integrated to be used as a time clock or to check all features and make adjustments from admin must have a computer to do so

Cons

Most of it

Vendor response

Josh - Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. Unfortunately many of your comments we believe are inaccurate and I would like to make sure that Buddy Punch is accurately reflected on Capterra. We do not charge for integrations with other Payroll Companies. We just added an integration with Paychex and there was no cost to any customer for doing so. We are also very timely in responding...

I am a fan

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

I really like that it tracks and accrues PTO & holiday hours. I don't have to ask anyone what my PTO balance is! I think its smart to be able to add a schedule if you happen to work the same amount of hours each day - much easier to add. I also like that I can add a comment or note of some sort, if needed.

Cons

I feel like there are some visual layout aspects that could be improved - or at least offered as a setting option. For example, I a m a visual person - I would love it if I could select a calendar view for seeing what I have entered for the month already. But I realized not everyone would like that layout, hence the suggestion for an optional setting to change the type of view.

Vendor response

Thank you Ana for the review, it is great to hear that you're a fan! We appreciate the feedback as well. Please reach out if you ever have any questions.

Our partner Buddy Punch

Reviewed a month ago

Our experience here for the time keeping and personal/vacation/holiday time keeping has been seamless and very easy and quick to learn.

Pros

The interaction with the the different sections is seamless once a person learns all the processes that relate to time in and time off. Having the availability of the calendar option makes keeping up with personal time very simple. The features that allow changes to time and scheduling are made simple and are quick and easy to perform.

Cons

Integration with our payroll service could be easier and more user friendly

Vendor response

Thank you Henry for the review, it is great to hear that you are finding us simple and easy to use. I'm glad that our Time Off tracking feature is working out well for your business.
